West Lakeview Neighbors (WLVN)
West Lake View Neighbors (WLVN) aims to improve the quality of life for the area
bounded by the west side of Racine to the east side of Ravenswood from the north side of Belmont
to the south side of Addison between Racine and Ashland and Irving Park between Ashland and Ravenswood. The group addresses zoning, traffic,
liquor license, sidewalk café and other issues affecting the
neighborhood and advises the 44th and 32nd Ward Aldermen. In Fall
of 2008, Sheil Park Neighbors and WLVN merged into one group.
Our meetings are held on the second Tuessday of every odd month (Jan, Mar, etc.) at 7:00 PM at the Mystic Celt, 3443 N. Southport. Meet and greet begins at 6:30 PM.
The group discusses
and reviews issues affecting our neighborhood and hears from local
elected officials, Lakeview Chamber and others. Our dues are $20 dollars per family. For a complete
schedule of meetings or more information, please check the website,
Our mixed-use neighborhood has commercial space on Lincoln, Belmont and Ashland, mixed-use on Southport, and residential streets that make up the difference. WLVN includes the Lincoln-Belmont Chicago Public Library, the Lake View YMCA on Marshfield and Roscoe, Gross Park (1700 block of Henderson), St. Luke’s Church and School, and St. Andrew’s Church and School, and Hamilton School.
WLVN’s new park and playlot on the west side of
Lincoln at Addison has been a huge success. The renovation of
Sheil Park at Southport and Cornelia was completed summer 2010. In addition our Planning and Development Committee reviews
proposed development projects and provides input and recommendations to
Aldermen Tom Tunney ( 44th
Ward) and Scott Waguespack (32nd Ward).
Elections were held November 2010. The current board can be found on the website, www.wlvn.org:
